Karen is absolutely wonderful! I hired Karen after my ex-husband decided to randomly move to CA, go MIA, and not follow through with our divorce decree from SC. After 2 years of dealing with the courts in SC it became clear moving my case to CA was my only option. I contacted many lawyers (at least 20) and it was apparent Karen was the only one I would trust to handle my case. I cannot even come close to explaining the complexly of trying to enforce a divorce decree when on party moves to another state. There are so many different state laws to follow and Karen was more than qualified for the challenge. Within 2 months of hiring Karen she able to locate my ex-husband (which no one else could manage to do for the past 2 years) and have him complete all the documents I needed for me to move on with my life. She might not be the cheapest lawyer in the area, but she is worth every penny and then some. Karen is great about communicating options with you, and kept the cost down lower than I ever thought was possible. Not only is she an absolutely outstanding lawyer she is kind, approachable, professional and easily accessible. I live in SC so we did all our communicating via email and phone. I always had an answer in less than 24 hours (normally within the hour). I could go on and on, but do yourself a favor if you need a family law attorney just hire Karen.

I highly recommend this attorney. She was very responsive to me every step of the way. Her fees were reasonable and she made sure to watch my bottom line the entire time. She is smart, caring and advocated for me in a way that I felt my voice was heard.

Karen helped me through the most difficult time in my life. She was very responsive and always made herself available when I needed her (to help answer questions, get guidance on how to proceed, and learn what the next steps were). I trusted her knowledge and her guidance. I would recommend Karen, to help anyone going through a divorce.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
Besides being a valuable and knowledgable legal resource, Karen has a wonderful disposition that brings a sense of calm in the highly emotional area of Family Law. Karen has the ability to LISTEN and truly hear what her clients and colleagues say. In addition, Karen is an impeccable writer. Her declarations, motions, and written legal work are not only persuasive but the are eloquent, succinct and beautifully written.
Lisa Sherman, Employment and labor Attorney
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
Karen is not only smart, shrewd and strategically positions her clients to achieve the best results, but she provides the most important gift of all — compassion. Because of Karen’s experience, strong working relationships and reputation within the family law community, she is able to efficiently and effectively deliver first-class results for her clients. But, what truly sets her apart is the time that she devotes to nurturing her clients which is simply unmatched. Many of her clients are emotionally distraught when they first contact her, but by the time, they hang up the phone or meet her in person, they feel that they are in good hands. Even after Karen wraps up the legal issues for a client, Karen goes the extra mile guiding them on the road to recovery. My fellow attorneys and I always joke with our spouses that if anything were to ever happen in our marriages, we have already retained Karen to represent us!
